The purpose of Anti-racism laws and organisations

Question for today: what purpose do anti-racism laws and anti-discrimination bodies have?

Individual countries in Europe and North America have anti-racism laws and anti-racism organisations. The stated purposes of these organisations and laws are the promotion of tolerance and pluralism. Beautiful aims.

Every year in Europe these organisations compile reports and statistics on the development of racist and discriminatory attacks on minorities in Europe. There is also a European Union organisation dealing with it. For the past 50 years or so racist violence has been on a very low level in Western societies. A positive development.

I visited the house of an Israeli friend a few months ago and he was watching a football match on TV. Maccabi Tel-Aviv against a French team. The match was in Israel and the Israeli onlookers were booing and hissing when the French team appeared on the field. My friend said it was because of the rising violence against Jews in France. France is becoming anti-semitic. I said nothing. But I thought to myself that everyone knows that it is North African Muslims who are mostly responsible for this type of crime.

Two years ago for instance it became known that the European Union's Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia has not published it report on anti-semitic crime. The reason: most of the violence is committed by immigrant Muslim youth.

This shows that the Western elites are not really concerned about protecting the Jews or other minorities. The reason that Western elites created anti-racism legislation and organisations is that they want to control the minds of their white populations. Pro-tolerance policies are a kind of proof of moral leadership for the political elites. They do not care about any immoral behavior in peoples' lifes. They do not care about lying, alcoholism, taking drugs, lack of patriotism, pedophilia, stealing, wife- or husband beating or abandoning children.

But being an elite they still instinctively understand they must have moral leadership. And tolerance was the cool thing to be leaders about. And it was easy. It did not require any sacrifice in personal lives of the elite. The price of Multiculturalism was paid by the blue collar workers, as we saw in yesterday posting.

Now that the cause of tolerance requires standing up to Muslims the elites dodge the issue. Because critisising Muslims endangers their political support and even risks assasination. The politicians continue to demand our acceptance of the Islamic community, as did Justice Minister P.H. Donner last week. They are not creative enough to come up with a viable political alternative and they just stumble on in the dark.

The Truth of the meek is trampled upon. Whites have been meek and therefore their interests have been squandered. It is time to end meekness.

Snouck, you seem to have an excellent insight into French society. Yes, it is the children of North Africans and muslims who commit these acts against French jews. However, I can tell you as an insider, the white French also still harbour anti Jewish sentiment. WHY? well, that is another question all together.

The French like to consider themselves champions of the underdog, yet when you point out that the Jews all around the world are far fewer in numbers than the muslims and have been some of the greatest contributors to European society they get, as most French do, snotty about it. They claim Jews "control everything" and are "better off than the muslims ". Of course if you mention Arabs control most of the worlds oil and have some of the richest royalty around they don't like this.




BTW- * Jews in the Netherlands united with the greater society to a much larger extent than any other Jewish community in Europe. While they continued to be governed by the kehilla, they lived not in a ghetto, but in a Jewish quarter, which the Jews were free to leave and which was frequented by non-Jews – the artist Rembrandt, for example, lived and worked in the Jewish quarter. The anti-Semitic violence that was still prevalent in Germany and eastern Europe was non-existent in the Netherlands.

Nouille,

"Jews in the Netherlands united with the greater society to a much larger extent than any other Jewish community in Europe. While they continued to be governed by the kehilla, they lived not in a ghetto, but in a Jewish quarter, which the Jews were free to leave and which was frequented by non-Jews"

The Getthos of the Middle ages were the result of co operation between the Rabbis and the Gentile authorities. They were not expressions of Gentile Anti-semitism, that is just a twist that has been given to the saga since the 1960ies. The rabbis in The Netherlands in the 17th century were for instance very unhappy with our freedom of speech and lobbied for a long time for the same kind of controls over the Jewish community as they had in other European countries. The Dutch authorities did not give in however.

The most famous target of the Rabbis was no one other than Baruch Spinoza. If the Rabbis had had their way he would have been hanged for blasphemy.

It is true that The Netherlands and Italy and other countries have been very free of Anti Jewish attitudes. I think you are wrong to put Germany in the same position as Eastern Europe. Anti -Jewish sentiment has been weak for most of the history of Germany. Joseph Goebbels complained about the lack of anti-Jewish sentiment amongst his countrymen and compared Austria favourably.

Germans supported the Nazis because of the promise of a national resurgence. Anti-Semitism was just the full Nazi package that they got together with the resurgence. This was related to the prominence of Jews in Socialist and Communist movements in Germany and Eastern Europe and the fears that this raised. My grandparents helped to hide Jews in the second world war, but they also told me of the fear they had in the 20ies and 30ies for Communist Jews.

Jews have been very prominent in Radical Leftist movements. David Horowitz of Frontpagemag.com has written a good book (Radical Son) about the Jewish contribution to the cause of the radical American Left. It is difficult for Jews to recognize this contribution as a reasonable cause for Gentile fear, but it is in my opinion unmistakable and has to be faced by them.
